LE SSERAFIM, NewJeans, Stray Kids, BTS, SEVENTEEN, And IZ*ONE Earn Platinum And Gold Certifications For Streaming In Japan
The Recording Industry Association of Japan (RIAJ) has announced its latest batch of official certifications!
In 2020, the RIAJ implemented a new certification system for online streaming of songs, as an addition to its pre-existing certification systems for physical album shipments and digital download sales. According to the new system, songs are certified silver once they reach 30 million streams, gold at 50 million streams, and platinum at 100 million streams.
In the RIAJ’s newly announced batch of certifications, LE SSERAFIM’s Korean debut track “FEARLESS” was officially certified platinum after surpassing 100 million streams in Japan. The group also earned a gold certification for their latest Korean title track “UNFORGIVEN,” which surpassed 50 million streams.
Congratulations to all of the artists!
